Can I just say that Kyrgyzstan national flag rocks? Cuz it does.
In 1991, Kyrgyzstan became the very last of the former Soviet Union republics to secede, and declare independence. That’s ok, Kyrgy. Estonia still loves you.
Its new flag is symbolic of Manas the Noble, a true national hero. He merged together 40 tribes that collectively formed the original Kyrgyz nation. That accomplishment is represented by the red field and the golden sun with 40 rays. Centered within that sun is a symbolic Kyrgyz yurt, the traditional home of it nomadic peoples.
Below is a statue of Manas the Noble. Nice sword, Manny.
